Kanye West Thinks ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ Should Have Won Plenty of Emmy Awards by Now



Kanye West

According to Kanye West, his wife and her family should have won plenty Emmys by now for their reality TV show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’.

He made his opinion known during an interview on SHOWstudio on Tuesday (October 6).

The 38-year-old rapper stated how proud he is of his family and how they have been breaking ground for generations.

He said ‘I feel proud to be in a family that has, you know, so many people breaking ground for the generations to come. I just feel it’s like, ‘Whoa, reality show, that’s so f–king new of an art form. My wife and my family should’ve had plenty of Emmys by now, but reality shows are considered to be like rap was when the Mondrian [hotel] wouldn’t let Run DMC and mother-f–king Will Smith stay there because they were rappers. The idea of a reality star not being allowed into a fashion show or not being nominated for their show, even if it’s the longest running and the most popular and… everybody I know watches it’

      Kanye, continue to be spokesperson for your wife while your mates are topping forbes list. Be spilling rubbish which I’m convinced it’s part of the media propaganda to encourage him into oblivion at some point.!

      So Kanye’s opinion seems delusional. That’s not strange. His delusions are even part of his brand, they push him and also attract some to him. Talk about that, criticize if you wish but don’t push it to the point of saying him buying a gun and shooting himself would make you happy. That’s not right especially as it’s just Kanye and not a serial killer or a really dangerous person. Not many people take Kanye, his words and rants half as serious as the man does. You shouldn’t too.

    There is a very big difference between being supportive of your girl and just co-signing all and any forms of nonsense. Sometimes the best support you can lend is to just be quiet., wave and smile. Gosh!

    Also how dare he even begin to fix his mouth to compare the trash that that family produces with the artform that is rap and hip-hop. Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Slick Rick etc. were talented individuals, what does Kim have? A pretty surgically enhanced face? Gerra Here Kanye! He should be ashamed!

      The only ground the Kardashian clan broke was teaching girls a valuable trick of turning a sex tape into money and making your family famous as a result. Real ground breaking stuff.

    You know your hip hop honey! I love how you didn’t just come here and talk “Kanye’s cray” , but you also validated your argument with solid fact.
    Yes, and I cosign your comment! Kanye needs to drink a tall glass of STFU

    I don’t watch the show. Matter of fact, I deliberately avoid watching it. I also know many people that avoid the show like the plague. So I wonder why he feels they should win an Emmy.

    and if the show is that great to deserve several Emmys, why don’t Mr. kanye be a part of it, why did he make it clear to Kim that he wouldn’t want his kids to be featured in the show, that was the reason Kim did’nt feature the scene of her giving birth to North, just like Kourtney did with her kids, at least that would give the show some sort of high rates, even Kim hardly features her daughter bcos she’s respecting kanye’s wish. and yet kanye comes here to rants rubbish, seems he is high on some stuffs.

    The thing is people win Emmy Awards for “acting” – playing a role, taking on a character, living someone else’s life and making it so believable that we need to commend them for it. No one wins an Emmy for being themselves, regardless of how fabulous their life is, regardless of how talented they are. So, NO! the Kardashian/Jenner family does not deserve an Emmy for being themselves – that’s what their show is about na, them being themselves in all their vapid, insipid, vain glory. Maybe when we begin to give awards for people being themselves, the Kardashian clan may get one, but till then, they can borrow a leaf from Kendall who is making good use of her talents on the catwalks.

    • Vortex

      Not quite, Aibee. Acting isn’t the sole focus of the Emmys. There are other categories and sub-categories and much to the annoyance of many (lol), it’s not impossible for the Kardashians’ show and spin-offs to be nominated or awarded. It’s just a matter of how seriously the jurors decide to take them. And, hey, even if the Emmys focused on only “acting- playing a role” as you said, don’t you think the Kardashians should be considered for acting what they’ve branded as “reality” and playing scripted roles? 🙂

      The thing is, while Kanye is probably certifiable, he’s not an unintelligent mad man. As he said, they make people uncomfortable and it’s because we don’t (or at least we say/pretend we don’t) appreciate their kind of entertainment. But, if history is anything to go by, the world will adjust and officially accommodate and recognize it. Kanye’s reference to the acceptance of rap as an art form is good evidence of this and the process is already in motion.

      Lies, poor morals and deviant ways of the Kardashian clan aside, they are a force in today’s world. They may not influence you and I directly but they influence pop culture (even though ratings for their show have dipped) and that is very strong currency in the entertainment world.
